There are a couple of words that are very useful and empowering for the business owner or entrepreneur to have on the tip of the tongue at all times and these are:
Next time I’m going to communicate with that person a little better.
Next time I’m going to make 20 additional calls to financial services companies.
Next time I’m going to double ad spend on YouTube.
Next time I’m going to cut out that campaign that is not converting.
Next time I am going to submit my tax return on time!
By constantly having the Next Time in mind, it sets the mind off in a creative direction, positively looking for ways to improve and maybe not dwelling on parts of the project that have not gone so well.
Even if things are going very well, the thought of Next Time keeps creativity flowing and an eye on the future and consistent improvement.
Till next time we catch up!
